Aww, it's time for the 'Mama' thread! This was one half of a Double A Side release with 'Who Do You Think You Are'. 'Mama' is an ode to the Spice Mums, but despite the sweet sentiment, this song seems to leave a lot of DenDeners cold. Let's see if the poll results reflect that or not.
Discussion points: the video, the artwork, the lyrics, performances, its success, whether you agreed with this being a single choice etc. Discuss anything to do with 'Mama'!
What I wrote about 'Mama' in the Spice Rate from 2014:
Gosh! One of the Spice Girls' singles crashes out in 60th place, which is a lot lower than its #44 position in the 2012 rate. It definitely wasn't helped by those 4 -1 scores, although the song does have some fans here - 15 out of 50 people gave the song either an 8/9/10 or 11 score.
This song is obviously an ode to the girls' mothers, and the single's release coincided with Mother's Day in the UK. It was released as a Double A Side single alongside 'Who Do You Think You Are', and entered straight into the chart at #1 on sales of nearly 250,000 copies. It spent 3 weeks there, and went on to sell over 600,000 copies, making it the 15th best selling single of 1997. This success was particularly impressive given that both songs were taken from 'Spice', which itself had already sold an incredible 2 million copies by the time the single was released.
